This Sunday, Nov. 29, Target is offering Buy 2, get 1 free on all action figures. Time to stock up for the holidays, or more importantly, donate one to Toys For Tots.
Target is now starting to add Super Awesome Me 3D Figure stations* to select stores. Reader Jeff C. sends in a few images of the station showing the Star Wars options available: Stormtrooper, Male Jedi and Female Jedi (coming soon) for $59.99 each. Click on through for a closer look.
*To clarify, these stations do not print your figure while you wait. Photos are taken and the order is placed in store, the figure arrives shipped to your address at a later date.
After hitting several Walmart and Target stores on my travels this weekend, I managed to see a few new products hitting shelves or at least arriving in stores.

Target Partners with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to Empower Kids to Get Active and Save Lives
It’s no secret that kids across the U.S. have major superhero potential. And soon, they’ll have the power to save lives and help provide therapeutic food packets to kids around the world, just by getting active. Target is teaming up with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to help bring UNICEF Kid Power to households and students across the country. To kick-off the partnership, Target will be the exclusive retailer of the Kid Power Band—the world’s first “wearable-for-good ™.”*
Our very own Justin (Chewie) reports finding the newest wave of 3.75″ Build-A-Weapon figures (General Hux, “Peezy”, Goss Toowers, Guavian Enforcer) at Target last night. Check them out in our forums.
Some Target store are apparently limiting the purchases of all Star Wars product to one DPCI per customer according to store signage. Meaning that if you find two 6″ Black Series figures you want, you must choose as stock is so limited in most locations.

Twitter follower @StudShooter managed to find a shelf full of Funko’s POP! figures for The Force Awakens which revealed Target will be having an exclusive Kylo Ren figure. A few quick images of the exclusive were taken to also reveal that Target’s version (#77) is a hood down variant while the standard release (#60) is a hood up version. Both should be available at Target on Force Friday.
No Bothans died to bring you this information, only an unsuspecting Target “red shirt”.

Thanks to JediNews for the heads up.
Some stuff is down 50% now, including the 6″ scale deluxes at some stores for just $12.48 per forum member TVC15’s report (recall Target lowered the everyday price on these a while back once it became apparent that there wasn’t enough demand to move them at full retail of $39.99).
Personal Note: If you’ve been holding out on these, the 6″ deluxes are pretty good, so passing on this price could lead to regret down the road...
A report from Infinity Inquirer has posted that each of the four Star Wars Rebels characters (Kanan, Ezra, Sabine and Zeb) revealed recently will initially be exclusive to 4 separate retailers as part of a timed release.
They also go on to say that after a few weeks, they should all be available where Disney Infinity figures are sold.
Thanks to our friends at MakingStarWars.net for the heads-up.
